I am doing research on Eason family from Nash County, N. C.Oldest documented info I have is as follows:John Eason,born 3/19/1849, died 4/8/1917. Married to Nancy Mae Vester, born 9/16/1866 died 2/11/1943. Info from John was from death certificate. His mother was listed as Willie Eason, father unknown. I assume he was illegitimate.The Bastardy Bonds list William Strickland and Annice Eason on the February, 1824 court. The 1850 census lists Annice or Annis at age 51 and Willie Ann at age 26 which would make her birth about 1824 and her mother at 1799. Willie Ann obviously was illegitimate also. What I am trying to determine if all this is accurate is Annis/Annice Eason's mother and father's name since the maiden names were used for Willie and John. If you have done research on this family or have any info that might help, I would greatly appreciate it. I have been told since childhood that my decendants were Scotch- Irish. Unfortunately, all grandparents were deceased before I was born; and I have no older living relatives or family Bibles to research.

Any info you can supply will be greatly appreciated.
